no not a joke, my daughters Patterdale went out on Monday and shot through some brambles and tore the lens in one eye, vet decided it would be best to take his eye out:upset: Just wondered if he'll mange perfectly well with just one

Current thoughts on dogs

is that they rely on scent far more than eye-sight, though he/she may have to relearn depth perception.

It'll soon get used to it and adapt. My cat lost an eye after scrapping with a squirrel:wacko: and coped just fine. Still climbed trees etc.

Beauty of dogs

is that whether you like them or not, they have this uncanny ability to live life in 'half full' mode.


I'm sure he'll be fine - even if he has to re-adjust his depth of field perception.... (bump...:blink:)

Poor creature :(

Non-human animals have a wonderful way of just pressing on regardless, coping with whatever they've got, and not moping.  Who knows how their minds work, but I suspect it won't even miss it/ remember anything is wrong after a bit of time passes.

Doesn't seem to bother him too much,

but he has to stay indoors for a bit.  He's a bit of a hunter so not sure he will feel the same when he goes for a walk. 

 That's how the silly mutt lost it in the first place, chasing something he was never going to catch and didn't look where he was going

Unlike humans in the animal world they learn quickly to overcome and conquer.

I have a one eyed squirrel which visits my garden and is able to out perform a two eyed squirrel in a chase.

just a quickie for Vulc on his dog

it looks like you had a Westie in the photo.

My mum lost her last Labrador in October, and is missing the company of a dog as she lives on her own. At the minute she has to hang fire as she isn't very well and not sure what hospital stays she has in front.  But if everything turns out ok she wanted a Westie or a Pug, (I know what your thinking about a pug!!)

What are the Westie temperaments, and are they ok with other dogs.  She is 77 next week and fairly fit (she still manages to go swimming every day)  would it be ok for her .

If she gets the all clear I would love to surprise her with a new friend but would like some feed back

Sorry not very bike friendly
